How To Do Inpainting in DALL-E 3

  1. Start by clicking on your picture, then click “Select” mode.

  2. Pick the part you want to change and talk to DALL-E to make changes.

  3. To save your work, click the Save button in the top-right corner.

Here are some easy tips:

  • In the top-left corner, you can make the selection tool bigger or smaller to easily pick the part you want to change. It's best to pick a big area around the part for better changes.

  • Use the Undo and Redo buttons above the picture to fix mistakes, or hit Clear Selection to start all over.

  • You can add, take away, or change parts of your picture.

  • If your picture already has text, DALL-E won't let you add more (I tried many times and it didn't work), but you can change the text.

5. Streamline and focus your pitch. Less is more.
6. Highlight your unique challenges and how you're addressing them.
7. Start with the end in mind. What's your call to action?

14. Why does your story need to be told? Find the passion.
15. Empathize with your characters' situations to build believability.
16. What are the stakes? Why should we care?
